Ms. Sparkle's polish for The Makers Dozen June


Hi lovelies!

I have another Ms. Sparkle pretty for you: a limited edition polish for the new ensemble "The Makers Dozen". The Makers Dozen is a collaboration between 12 makers with a different guest maker joining monthly. They create 13 limited edition polishes every month inspired by a theme and a color. June's theme is Vacation Destinations and Ms. Sparkle chose the northern regions of the planet for inspiration. This is "Hunting for Northern Lights":

The Digit-al Dozen does Books - Papyrus


Hello lovelies!


So books... usually they're printed on paper and what's the precursor to paper? Indeed, papyrus. Ancient Egyptian books were written on papyrus and I had this wonderful plate lying around, begging to be used, so here goes!

The Digit-al Dozen does Marble - Smoosh Marble


Hello lovelies!

The third marble mani of the week! I chose a smoosh marble this time. For this relatively simple technique one uses a stamper to smoosh polish together. This usually works wonderfully as a base for stamping, but this time I left it as is:




I started with a white base (HEMA) and then smooshed with P2 "Spaceshot" and "Ferris Wheel", Essie "I'm Addicted" and Konad Silver. I sealed it in with Seche Vite.


Kinda loved wearing this, was sad to take it off after just one day! What do you think? Do you like smoosh marbles?

Have a look below at the beautiful marbles by my fellow Digit-al Dozen Ladies!

The Digit-al Dozen does Marble - Water Marble


Hi lovelies!

For the first challenge of the year, we decided on 'Marble'. Over the years, folks have been coming up with many ways to create marbled nails, the most famous of which is water marbling. I've never been good at it, but I thought I'd give it a try with some new polishes my sister gifted me for Christmas, that she bought in Brazil. Yay for exotic polishes!


I have to say that this is one of my more successful tries, so I'm quite pleased! The polishes marbled marvellously, I'm so happy I thought of using them!



Thanks, sis, for these beauties! 
What do you think? Did you ever try water marbling?
In any case, take a look at the links below to see the beautiful marbling of the other ladies!
